Many combination Depts egos get in the way of the job, not at Westampton. Here, you can't tell who is paid and who is a volunteer and that's why we are filming here. In this show, we ride with both to a fire. The morning starts off with an auto accident at a very dangerous well-known "T" intersection. Then comes the pranks.
The 2nd half of this 48 with Eng. 3's "A" Shift. Firefighter Silva is on a strict diet and a full regiment of exercises; he takes advantage of whatever time he has in between the large volume of calls at Station 3. A call comes in for an additional engine needed at a fire out in the west side of town. There's no hydrants out here. They are called off and head back to the station. On the way, they drive through one of Fresno's many homeless camps. They have overtaken the Downtown Fresno Area and it has become a very dangerous place full of drugs, prostitution and people that prey on others. A call comes in and they are out the door...and so much more.
